LG G3 S

Strong mid-range phone form LG
While in Apple’s lineup of iPhones adding an ‘s’ after the name denotes an improved version, this is not the case with the LG G3 S. Indeed, the LG G3 S is designed to be a cheaper, cut down version of the successful LG G3.

The LG G3 S’s display is 5 inch screen slightly smaller than the LG G3’s, but its screen size firmly places it in the ‘phablet’ market as it makes it the same size as the HTC One M8. Apart from the size difference, the G3 S looks very similar to the G3. It has a slim bezel and the metal-looking plastic gives the phone a premium feel. In addition, it’s great to see that the G3 S is available in a choice of three colors: black, white and gold.

Like the LG G3 and the LG G2, the LG G3 S has a rear button set up. While this was something of a novelty of the LG G2, with a little practice, this set up is surprisingly comfortable and easy to use. In addition, it simplifies the front of the phone.

Beneath the surface, the LG G3 S is powered by Android KitKat. While this is not the latest edition of Google’s mobile operating system, it is efficient and easy to use. In addition, the LG custom user interface gives the operating system a clean appearance. The LG G3 S has a 1.2GHz quad-core and 1 GB of RAM which allows it to launch apps quickly and multitask with ease. While this set up allows you to play casual games with ease, the phone does struggle loading more demanding games. However, once the game has loaded more demanding games run fine.

On the front of the phone there is a 1.3 MP camera. While the camera is not to going to be taking award winning shots, it’s suitable for video calls and the odd selfie. On the back of the camera there is an 8 MP camera complete with an LED flash. This makes it competitive with other mid-range cellphones currently available on the market.

LG G2 Mini

LG G2 Mini

Mini but mighty.

Like Samsung and HTC, LG has launched a mini version of its best-selling LG G2. This offers the benefits of its most premium cellphone in a smaller package and at a more affordable price point. Don’t let the ‘mini’ in the cellphone’s name throw you off, the LG G2 Mini means big business!

While the LG G2 Mini has a smaller screen than its big brother, the LG G2, it certainly has a large screen for a mini phone. Indeed, with a 4.7 inch screen and minimum bezel, the LG G2 Mini is perfect for reading and watching films on. The cellphone has a qHD display with fantastic viewing angles for bright and crisp images. Like the LG G2, the LG G2 Mini sports the innovative rear button set up. Although this placement may seem a little peculiar at first, it does make sense as it is more comfortable to operate the cellphone this way. In addition, the absence of buttons on the front of the phone allows for a slimmer bezel for a more immersive experience.

The LG G2 Mini is fitted with a quad-core Snapdragon processor and is backed up with 1GB of RAM for speedy processing and effortless multitasking. While the LG G2 Mini only comes with 8GB of onboard memory, there is a microSD card slot present which allows you to top up the cellphone’s memory. It’s great to see that the G2 Mini is fitted with a 2,440mAh battery which really sets it apart from other competitors at this end of the cellphone market.

Though some cellphone manufacturers cut back on camera capabilities in their mid-range handsets, this is not the case with the LG G2 Mini. On the back of the cellphone you will find an 8MP camera complete with flash which enables you to take great photographs while out and about. The camera application has a number of great features that give you greater control over your photographs. One of our favorite features is the ‘cheese shutter’ which takes a photo when someone in the shot says ‘cheese’. On the front of the G2 Mini there is a 1.3MP camera which is perfect for video calls and the occasional selfie.

Debuted on the LG G2, one of the most interesting aspects of the LG G2 Mini is the Knock Code security system. This is a unique security system that allows you to tap a customized pattern onto the device’s screen in order to ‘wake’ it.

LG G3

LG G3

LG G3

2014’s most innovative design
The G3 model manufactured by LG is considered by many to the the flagship mobile phone offered by this provider in 2014. In fact, the G3 is seen to be comparable to even the most popular models including the Samsung S5 and the HTC One M8. What features have allowed this latest version to be so attractive and which benefits are so very valuable to the customer?

For ease of transport and handling, the overall dimensions and weight are important to consider. The width of the G3 is nearly identical to that of the HTC One M8 (just under seventy-five millimetres). Additionally, the G3 is slightly less than one hundred and fifty grammes; comparable to similar models produced by Samsung, HTC and Sony.

While handling is certainly critical, the visual experience to be enjoyed with this model is not to be missed. A screen of 5.5 inches is actually larger than the top competitors. This enables a more streamlined interaction and in the case of viewing videos or movies, the graphical benefits cannot be overlooked. In fact, the G3 offers one of the largest screens currently on the market.

Ergonomics are another aspect to take into account. LG has placed the power and volume controls on the rear of the phone. This is seen to be a slightly better design than brands that offer such buttons on the side or the front. As these controls are quite easy to reach, both left- and right-handed users will have no problem in terms of access. Unlike some phones, there is no direct control for the camera although it can be easily opened by holding the volume “down” button for a few seconds.

Like the LG G2, the G3 packs an impressive amount of memory and its performance is seen as comparable with other phones in its class. Two gigabytes of RAM are complimented by a Snapdragon 801 processor. The thirty-two gigabyte model offers an additional gigabyte of RAM although most analysts feel that this makes little overall difference in terms of performance. Additionally, a microSD card which supports a full one hundred and twenty-eight gigabytes solves memory problems that had often plagued the G2 design.

With a camera that offers thirteen megapixels of quality, the G3 is indeed seen as a great leap forward in the evolution of LG smartphones. Many feel that this latest model reflects the desire of LG to enter into the realm of high-end mobile connectivity.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

2014’s most innovative design

This newer Samsung Galaxy model was recently unveiled and its unique features are indeed something to behold. While many analysts feel that the Note Edge shares many characteristics in common with the Note 4, there are also several improvements which need to be fully appreciated. Above all, the use of what is known as OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) technology has enabled the Note Edge to offer a physical flexibility that is ideal for on-the-go users. Why is this screen so notable?

The first aspect observed is that the display provides no less than five hundred and twenty-four pixels per inch; an impressive density that will offer extremely high resolution. Although this is quite respectable, this model pushes the boundaries even further with a curved side screen. It is important to note that this is an entirely independent display as opposed to a mere continuation of the main screen. The primary benefit is that the phone can still be controlled with this one-inch screen even when the larger portion is in sleep mode.

Besides this novel addition, the Note is quite easy to handle (although the right-hand screen strip may make it tricky to operate for left-handed users). As with other Samsung models, the Edge is lightweight and quite thin; transport is easy. Alongside this physical functionality are front- and rear-facing cameras which both provide a resolution of 3.7 megapixels.

Still, the Galaxy Note Edge shares several features in common with the previous model. An octa-core Exynos 5433 processor of 1.3 gigahertz offers an appreciable amount of memory while a microSD card is able to supply an extra sixty-four gigabytes of RAM. While there are some seasoned users who feel that this capacity could have been increased, it is often cited that less internal memory will extend the battery life and help to prevent inconvenient system crashes. This is perhaps the reason that Samsung chose to keep the same Android specifications as the Galaxy Note 4.

Overall, the most striking quality of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is its revolutionary screen design. Some are wondering if future applications may enable this model to be handled easier by left-handed users; we will see if such software becomes available. Combining a slim design, a nominal amount of memory and what can only be called a state-of-the art display, the Note Edge may very well be one of the top trendsetters for the remainder of 2014.

LG G Flex

LG G Flex

The LG G Flex is one of the most innovative cellphones released in recent years. Undeniably, the most striking aspect of this cellphone is its design. Using the OLED technology found in LG’s latest range of curved televisions, the display of the LG G Flex is not only curved but also flexible as it can be flattened out straight. While cynics may argue that the curved, flexible design of the LG G Flex is nothing more than a gimmick, the design does in fact have a purpose. The curve of the phone matches the natural curvature of the face, allowing for superior speaker and microphone placement. Like the LG G2, the LG G Flex too uses LG’s innovative rear button set-up for better convenience.

LG’s innovation is not just limited to the physical appearance of the LG G Flex. The LG G Flex features KnockON, a gesture-based navigation feature that allows you to wake the phone by simply tapping on the screen. Dual Window is a helpful feature that allows you to divide the screen into two panels and simultaneously run two apps, allowing for greater productivity and effective multitasking.

Beneath the surface the LG G Flex is powered by a mighty 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Processor, allowing for seamless operating and easy multitasking.

Like many other new smartphones on the market, the LG G2 firmly falls into the ‘phablet’ category as it has an impressive large screen with minimal bezel and HD clarity. The most distinctive feature of the LG G2 is its button set up. As opposed to traditional smartphone designs where the main buttons are on the front of the device or the side, the buttons to operate the LG G2 are located on the back of the device. LG comment that this makes the device more comfortable to use and promoted single-handed use of the phone.

LG’s new flagship smartphone runs on the ever-popular Android operating system. Not only is this OS incredibly easy to use as it was specifically built with touchscreen devices in mind, but it also grants users access to Google’s bourgeoning collection of apps and games in the Play Store.

The LG G2 also has a Voice Mate, a helpful voice control application. Voice Mate is easily activated by saying the keyword and can be used to perform a number of actions such as searching the web and setting an alarm.
